CSCS Board of Directors

About the School Board

 

CSCS has a 5-9 member Board composed of both parents and community members. Board members bring a wide range of experience and skills to aid in the governance of the school, including education, legal, business, engineering, web development, publishing, real estate and finance backgrounds.

 

The Board works in partnership with the DEI Committee and administrators to advance Cottonwood’s Equity Action Plan, as well as supporting the overall governance of the school, including approving and overseeing the annual budget, engaging with teachers and families, and facilitating events that enrich the school-community. 

 

The CSCS board values input and support from the community. Please consider attending any of the monthly meetings or email us at board@thecottonwoodschool.org
